Maidstone fans got their first look at new signing Ollie Muldoon at the weekend.

The former Gills and Charlton midfielder made his debut as a late substitute in United’s 1-0 win at Barrow.

Interest from the Football League and Scottish Premiership saw Muldoon turn down a summer switch to the Gallagher.

But he was still available a couple of months down the line and this time Maidstone got their man.

Muldoon, 23, said: “I came over in the summer and tried to get something done.

“It didn’t happen then but, happily, it’s happened now and I can kick on and help the team.

“At the start of pre-season I had other options but they fizzled out because there was something else in the pipeline, but that fell through as well, so I’m starting again.”

Muldoon believes the pre-season stint with Maidstone will help him hit the ground running as he looks to earn a place in central midfield.

He said: “The boys are on a good run. I know quite a few of them already so I think I’ll settle in straight away.

“The main thing is to settle in quickly and it helps having been here in pre-season.

“Centre-midfield is my position. I’m a box-to-box player, I try to create a few things and chip in with a few goals.

“When I was at Charlton they liked me to play in the holding role, so I can do that as well, but I do like to be in the action and try to get involved as much as I can.”
